Cheeseburger Tacos

Cauliflower Nachos

Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole

Louisiana-Style Chicken Wings with Creamy Cucumber-Dill Dip

Meat Lover’s Chili

Cheeseburger Taco

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 pound ground beef

1/4 onion, diced


Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup shredded cheese

1/4 cup shredded lettuce

1 tablespoon avocado oil mayonnaise, I like Primal Kitchen.

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

1/4 cup pickle slices


In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and onion, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 6 minutes, stirring regularly, until fully cooked.

Construct you tacos! Take a fully cooled taco shell and go crazy. For the Cheeseburger Tacos, Stuff the cheese shells with the beef, shredded lettuce, mayonnaise, mustard, and pickle slices.

Cheese Taco Shells

1/3 cup of blended Mexican Cheese for Each Taco Shell you want to make.

Silicone Baking Sheet or Parchment Paper


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Add 1/3-cup mounds of shredded cheese to the pan, leaving plenty of space between them. Bake until the edges are brown and the middle of each has fully melted, about 7 minutes.

Set the pan a the cooking rack. Quickly, Bend the shells into a taco shape. I like to use the edge or a storage container lined with parchment paper. You can get creative with what you want to bend them over. As they cool, they will harden.

Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole


1 pound bacon

1 tablespoon ghee

1 pound ground beef (you can also use Ground Turkey)

Pink salt

Freshly ground

black pepper


1 tablespoon ghee

1⁄2 cup heavy (whipping) cream

4 large eggs, beaten

3⁄4 cup shredded cheese

Pink salt

Ground black pepper

I recommend incorporating some acidity into this recipe. With all of the cheese and salty meat, a little acidity freshens up this recipe.

You can:

• Add 1⁄2 cup of diced pickles into the beef mixture. I never skip the pickles when making this recipe.

• If pickles aren’t your thing, Sliced pepperoncini works well, too.

• Mix 1⁄4 cup of low-sugar tomato sauce, like Rao’s brand, with the cream-and-eggs mixture.


Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until both sides are crispy. Cool for 5 minutes on a paper towel lined plate. Transfer to a cutting board and chop the bacon.

In a second large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the ghee. Add beef and brown. Season with pink salt and pepper.

Once the meat is browned, after about 8 minutes, drain the fat and mix in the chopped bacon.


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with the ghee.

Spoon the beef-and-bacon mixture into the bottom of baking dish making a bottom layer.

In a medium bowl, mix together the cream, eggs, and half of the cheese, and season with pink salt and pepper. Pour over the meat.

Top with the remaining half of the cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the cheese on top is melted and lightly browned.

Let the casserole cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
